Software updates? Which one first.

When updating NX do I install the Maintenance-release first or the Maintenance-pack?

Thank you


RE: Software updates? Which one first.

Install the latest MR (maintenance release), than any MP (maintenance packs) that you require for that version.

RE: Software updates? Which one first.

Hi Dave,

Do I need to install each MR or are they inclusive,10.0.1, then 10.0.2, then 10.0.3 or can I do just 10.0.3? Same for the MP, do I do these individually?

Thank you!


RE: Software updates? Which one first.

Both MR & MP are inclusive, so MR 10.0.3 has 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 in it.
10.0.3 MP6 will have the previous five 10.0.3 MPs in it.

Always go to the latest of each that you are advised to use.

NX3 to NX11 with almost every MR (24versions)

RE: Software updates? Which one first.

MP1 is for NX11 Once you install the MR you are at NX11.0.1.

You'll have to wait until a MP for 11.0.1 comes out, and then decide if you need it. I think Siemens recommends only the MR's, unless you have a specific need for an MP.

RE: Software updates? Which one first.

If you have installed the MR to update to NX 11.0.1, then you have the latest version (as of this post); there is no MP (yet) for NX 11.0.1. GTAC (the NX help desk) generally recommends that you install the latest MR, but do NOT install MP's unless it fixes a specific problem that you are having.

The warning text you see is telling you that this particular patch (MP) is intended for an older version (MR) of NX. Since the MR is newer, it includes all the fixes contained in the MP.
